CONTROL OF CORROSION ON STEEL, FIXED OFFSHORE PLATFORMS ASSOCIATED WITH PETROLEUM PRODUCTION

This NACE Recommended Practice outlines materials, practices, and methods for control of corrosion for fixed platforms associated with petroleum production located in offshore areas. The purpose is to facilitate more effective corrosion protection of platforms by the presentation of reliable information. Corrosion on offshore platforms can be divided into three major areas: the submerged zone, the splash zone, and the atmospheric zone. The submerged zone includes that portion of the platform below the mudline. This Recommended Practice does not include procedures for the control of internal corrosion of wells, piping, and associated equipment that may be in use on the platform, but does include external protection of these items in the atmospheric zone on the platform. Underwater pipelines and pipeline risers are covered in NACE Recommended Practice RP-06-75, "Control of Corrosion on Offshore Steel Pipelines"; they are specifically excluded from this document.
